On the heels of their June announcement of the availability of chips and modules for the Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) standard, Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) and RadioScape have announced that multiple companies attending IFA in Berlin demonstrated product prototypes developed around TI's DRM350 digital baseband and RadioScape's RS500 module.

Continuing to accelerate DRM's rollout, TI and RadioScape will enable products from consumer brands to appear on store shelves within the year.

TI's DRM350 enables developers to create cost-effective dual DRM/DAB-based devices with a single chip and easily implement enhanced features on the integrated programmable DSP, such as digital content playback of MP3 and windows media audio (WMA) files.

RadioScape's RS500 module, a complete DRM solution, is based on TI's DRM350 and includes all of the hardware and software necessary to support any combination of DRM, DAB, FM-RDS and AM.

Meanwhile, DRM is a non-proprietary digital radio system for the short-wave, medium-wave and long-wave AM broadcast bands. It enables a single tower to broadcast over a large geographic area with near-FM quality sound. It is also supported by a wide network of broadcasters, equipment OEMs and silicon providers working together to design, promote and deliver low-cost receivers and content for worldwide markets. Through DRM, consumers will have access to more content than ever before.
